My full name is Molly Rebecca Marko. I turned 21 on November 25th. My favorite color is olive green, but it always changes because I’m only kinda-sorta indecisive (maybe). I grew up in a small town in Wisconsin and decided to major in Marketing Communications at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. You’ll probably find me there with my hand around a mug of coffee and my shoulder carrying my backpack with my trusty MacBook, Canon vlogging camera, and tattered journal, searching for the next adventure. Or for my next class. But most likely an adventure.
I cut my hair at the beginning of the summer and I don’t know why I didn’t do it sooner. I love it short. My eyes are light blue like my Mom’s. I am 5’3″ and short like my Dad. I have a smile like my sister, Morgan, but not nearly as beautiful. And me and my little brother Myron have the same sense of humor, but he is always the one making me laugh.
What is this blog all about?
I want to leave my mark on the world, but most importantly, I want to encourage you to leave yours. I have lived my life staying silent, holding back, and doing what was expected. I’ve wasted time focusing on failures and wondering what others will think of me. But I have had enough. God didn’t create us to live this way.
I started the #leaveyourmarko hashtag so we can be brave together. It has my name, but I want it to be yours. Use it on social media so we can see and encourage each other as we leave our mark!
I hope that these blog posts will remind you that you (and yes, I most certainly mean you) are worth sharing with the world—exactly the way God made you. Nothing more, nothing less.
“Don’t be afraid, I’ve redeemed you. I’ve called your name. You’re mine.” Isaiah 43:1
